Talk about getting Brunched in the Face! Thanks to @JerryJamesStone for this delicious recipe.
Lots of good news for Brunched in the Face! I’ve been looking into pop-ups and am tentatively scheduled for ATO in SF at 7th and Market in the Renoir Hotel for Sunday, November 11th. Once everything is set and definite, I will release more information. Also… I’ve been talking with truck manufacturers and getting quotes and it looks I’ve found the right match for Brunched in the Face. So much...

Perhaps you have heard some things about a possible pork shortage looming for 2013. If not, you can read about it here. Now that you’re up to date on this horrific turn of events, you should also know that many U.S. pork sources as well as the USDA claim that this alleged shortage will not affect the U.S. Phew. Read about these claims here and here. Yes, pork prices will undoubtedly...

I’ve been working very hard, particularly this week, on my chorizo burger recipe. I am holding a tasting party this Saturday for my friends. They’ll be tasting 3 different burgers and I am hoping to get the feedback I need to decide on THE burger for the menu. I don’t doubt that a few tweaks will have to be made post tasting party, but I am looking to my friends’ precious...
Local Food Lab
I just received some very excellent news and want to share it with everyone. A few weeks ago I applied for Local Food Lab’s Fall Startup Accelerator Program, an incubator for foodie entrepreneurs. I was not only accepted into the 6 week program, but I was given a $1000 scholarship. The program starts in the beginning of October and I am so psyched to be getting the mentoring and business...

Graphics are in the works for a Brunched in the Face logo. I’m super excited that this is happening and I owe HUGE thanks to my friend Christy Brinegar for doing this for me. She’s an amazing designer and has already given me first drafts with colors, fonts, and design beyond this first sketch from last night. Let me know what you think.

Exciting news this week: 1. LLC is in the process of being filed and should be done and set in about 30 days. 2. Then comes DBA and more fun paperwork ;) Also: Big thank you to everyone for their support. Without your encouragement I know I would not be moving along so steadily.
First Taste Testing Party
Hello Brunchers! It’s been a while since I’ve properly updated this blog. Brunched in the Face is still in the research and development phase with menu items and recipes coming along very nicely. Earlier this month I held a taste test for my friends. I served up a ton of spicy yam hash, sweet potato waffles with brown sugar syrup, coffee banana smoothies, and whole wheat biscuits. I...
Let’s hope I can purchase Brunchedintheface.com for a reasonable price! I’ve got the wheels in motion.
Up first there’s a whole wheat biscuit. Deliciously flaky, but perhaps not the flavor I am looking for. On to recipe number 2.
While my posts have been pretty sparse these past couple of weeks, that doesn’t mean that I am not doing anything or have dropped this project idea. In fact, it means the exact opposite. I’ve been working very hard on my menu and have narrowed it down to 5 killer items, but I am still working on the recipes for these. I’ve never had to write a precise recipe before and so when...
Nick's Wheely Good Breakfast for Lunch
As I promised, pictures from my adventure to Nick’s Wheely Good Breakfast in Emeryville are here! The truck was parked right across the street from Doyle Park at 62nd and Doyle, so after I received my order, I walked over to the park, found a picnic table to sit at, and I enjoyed my lunch… or breakfast… or… whatever. I ordered the pork belly hash— a delicious mix...
Day 2: GO!
I’ve been reading some books on starting food trucks and entrepreneurialism in the street food industry and have learned so much already. Something I read last night that really spoke to me was that food truck owners and operators should be in shape. There’s a lot of heavy lifting and it is a very fast paced environment, so being out of shape or too weak could actually make a...
The Journey Begins
My name is Dana Schnittman and I have dreams of starting my own food truck. I am not a techincally trained chef, but I have had a passion for food and cooking since I was little. In elementary school my brother and I used to play “diner” on weekend mornings. We would create menus and then take turns preparing breakfast for each other. Of course, at such a young age our menus were...
